Mandy's story (Private Landlord)
“Cats have never caused me any concern and I’ve never had any problem allowing tenants to own them. I’m much more concerned with the damage to a property that can be caused by smoking than by anything a cat could do.”
Mandy, private landlord, Yarm, North Yorkshire
Morissey and Zoidberg's story
Brothers Morrisey and Zoidberg were adopted by owners Katie and Frank from a rehoming charity. Because of their background, the couple were advised that they were best suited as indoor cats.
This meant they could be perfect family pets for the couple, who live in a second floor flat with their son Isaac.
Katie said: "We've always made sure Morrisey and Zoidberg have plenty of stimulating toys and activities, as well as scratching posts. They've never caused a nuisance to any of our neighbours and they live happy, contented lives as indoor cats."
